We are thrilled that FLOX Robotics has just been included as the newest member of the prestigious Swedish AI Startup Landscape. “This means that our AI has been assessed as mature and complies with the high standards that were reviewed by the international jury consisting of leading AI experts,” said Flox CEO Sara Nozkova.
FLOX now part of the European AI Startup Landscape
The AI Startup Landscape is a European initiative to create a landscaping of AI startups in each member country currently led by AI Sweden, Ignite Sweden, The Netherlands AI Coalition, NORA (Norwegian Artificial Intelligence Research Consortium), Cluster for Applied AI (Norway) and Norwegian Open AI Lab.
Flox added two new members to its team in January. We welcomed Simone Vianella as our in-house Animal Scientist, leading Flox’ animal science-related projects and activities, focusing on helping Flox reimagine solutions that help solve the ever-increasing Human-WIldlife Conflict (HWC). And Joon Knapen as Flox’ Chief Marketing Officer tasked with helping drive Flox’ growth and positioning. Simone and Joon join the Flox team as employee no. 5 and 6.
Advancing FLOX’ solution to commercial introduction!
As indicated in our end-of-year message, 2021 was all about learning from the various field tests conducted in the forests of Northern Italy; agricultural fields in Eastern Sweden and a vineyard in Southern Sweden. 2022 will be all about the commercial introduction of Flox’ solution in the coming quarters. As we are gearing up to this pivotal moment, right now our Technology and Product Teams are working on extending the reliability, robustness and ruggedness of Flox’ first complete unit. For this, we are especially focusing on upgrading the Flox drone to improve its weather resilience and autonomous capabilities, as well as optimizing the charging station.
FLOX in Match-Making Heaven during the Sweden Innovation Days
We were honoured to be invited to participate in this year’s online Sweden Innovation Days, meeting with a variety of different potential customers and partners from the #agricultureandfarming and #forestry sectors from different countries around the world. “I had a great set of meetings with some amazing potential stakeholders who showed real interest and admiration in Flox’ value proposition,” said Flox CEO Sara Nozkova. “Follow up meetings have already been scheduled!”
